Hello! We are back for another episode celebrating Japanese pop culture! This week we are talking about properties getting “westernized” treatments! Ghost in the Shell, Dragonball, All You Need is Kill, Death Note, and more making their way over here are more than enough for us to talk about!

Join this week as Kuma, Tyler, and your host Kevin try to make sense of what impact this will be seeing more and more adaptions of these already existing properties!
